The Prometheus taxonomic database (2000)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Raguenaud, C., Kennedy, J., & Barclay, P. (2000). The Prometheus taxonomic database. In Proceedings IEEE International Symposium on Bio-Informatics and Biomedical Engineering (63-70). https://doi.org/10.1109/bibe.2000.889590

M.R. Pullen et al. (2000) have designed a new model of plant taxonomy (called Prometheus); it supports multiple overlapping classifications, and distinguishes the process of naming from classifying. The concepts identified in this taxonomic model nec... Read More about The Prometheus taxonomic database.

Neural Network Approximation of Fuzzy Logic Operators (2000)
Journal Article
Andras, P., Kaban, A., & Bossanyi, R. (2000). Neural Network Approximation of Fuzzy Logic Operators. Annales universitatis occidentalis timisiensis series philosophia, XII, 147-159

We investigate in this paper how to use neural networks to help the development of efficient fuzzy decision systems. First we review the basic theories of fuzzy logic and neural networks, and we look at the main applications of the artificial neural...

The need to transform queries between heterogeneous databases arises in many circumstances, including query transformation between a global and a local query. This paper describes a query mediation approach to the interoperability of heterogeneous da... Read More about A query mediation approach to interoperability of heterogeneous databases.

Abstraction: a key notation for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach. (2000)
Journal Article
Yang, H., Liu, X., & Zedan, H. (2000). Abstraction: a key notation for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach. Journal of Software: Evolution and Process, 12, 197-228. https://doi.org/10.1002/1096-908X%28200007/08%2912%3A43.0.CO%3B2-X

This paper advocates that extracting formal specification semantically consistent to the original legacy system will facilitate further redesign and forward engineering greatly. The three parts of reengineering could be integrated on the basis of a w... Read More about Abstraction: a key notation for reverse engineering in a system re-engineering approach..

DISCOVERing the impact of reality (poster session) (2000)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Dawson, L., Turner, S., Turner, P., Dawson, L., & Munro, A. (2000, September). DISCOVERing the impact of reality (poster session). Presented at Proceedings of the third international conference on Collaborative virtual environments - CVE '00

In this poster paper, we introduce the DISCOVER project, which is developing a CVE for teams to practice managing emergencies in offshore and maritime domains. Many factors constrain design in such contexts. Here we describe just one of them, the... Read More about DISCOVERing the impact of reality (poster session).

Small group design activity and requirements on collaborative technologies. (2000)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Turner, S., & Cross, N. (2000). Small group design activity and requirements on collaborative technologies. In S. A. R. Scrivener, L. J. Ball, & A. Woodcock (Eds.), Collaborative Designing (253-260). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4471-0779-8_24

In the last decade or so, many collaborative technologies have been developed which aim to allow people in geographically distributed locations to work together as if sharing the same space. Such tools range from the simple asynchronous resources of... Read More about Small group design activity and requirements on collaborative technologies..

Requirements are in the eyes of the beholders (2000)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Turner, P. (2000). Requirements are in the eyes of the beholders. In S. McDonald, Y. Waern, & G. Cockton (Eds.), People and Computers XIV - Usability or Else!: Proceedings of HCI 2000 (29-44). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-1-4471-0515-2_3

It will be demonstrated that the perceived attributes or characteristics of information artefacts can act as constraints on the ways in which people use and interact with them. This is particularly true when the information artefacts behave as bounda... Read More about Requirements are in the eyes of the beholders.

TOUCH: Creating interactional artefacts in a physical world (2000)
Journal Article
Smyth, M. (2000). TOUCH: Creating interactional artefacts in a physical world. Interfaces / the British HCI Group newsletter, 17

The maxim states that seeing is believing but that it is touch that determines reality. Instinctively we reach out to touch those objects that attract or perplex. Touch conveys an intimacy both at a physical and emotional level. In the pursuit of t... Read More about TOUCH: Creating interactional artefacts in a physical world.

Supporting decision making in design using shape grammars. (2000)
